PANDAVA GITA | VERSE 70 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA

Sa hanisthan maha chidhram sa ch antha jada moodatha , yan muhurtham kshanam vapi Vasudevam na chinthayeth

COMMENTARY #1 :

The practice of the presence of GOD is ultimately the key to success .

All sorrows befall us , calamities come upon us , everything becomes difficult and the whole horizon looks dark before us as if there is no hope at all , the moment we forget the existence of GOD .

One of the main teachings of the Sufi school of mysticism is that what we call samsara , or the life of earthly bondage , is not merely the world that we see outside .

Samsara is not merely this world in which we are living ; samsara is a name given to the forgetfulness of GOD .

The moment we forget the existence of GOD , we are in samsara .

COMMENTARY #2 :

We cannot miss the awareness of GOD for a second . . .

That is veritable hell for you , that is mischief , and that is the source of every kind of trouble . What is " that " ?

It is that moment when you forget your relationship to that Universal Reality .

The moment you begin to assert yourself as an independent person , trouble has already started brewing . . .

Where the individual is in union with GOD , where you are in a state of perfect internal harmony with your great Master Supreme , you shall have every kind of blessedness .
